Jose my balsa pack didn't have this wing tip and ael parts so I just winged it and made it up as i we t along. Yes Eric is right about the brass v parts drove me mad trying to figure it out was even at the point of building a new centre section but I came to my senses

Hi Fellow modellers ¡

Back to work. The past days I`ve been working in the mounts of the central part of the top wing. Bending the top part of the wires has been a pain to mnage a good fit of yhe panel. I had to remake the back wire (too short).

First I remade the brass "V" parts cuttinf and soldering.

hpim1670.jpg

Mounted the wires on the fuse part

hpim1672.jpg

The "V" has benn epoxi glued.

Jigging all the parts.

hpim1675.jpg

The supports have fixed with tape some squares 3D printed and weighted and nailed to the board. Put some 1/16 blsa strip under the wing for the missing sheeting/capstrips.

Nex soldered to the brass parts bolted to the wing. Made the cross bars, stitched with copper wire and soldered. Put on the fuse for a show.

Next I`ll begin adding sheeting and capstrips.

Cheers.

Good morning followers.

Thaks for your kind words.

The past days I`ve been capstripping the top wing. Not finished yet. I`ve found that "S2" needs capping also (Or I have missed something?

Looking good there, you are making good progress. Soon be on to covering

I am pretty sure I made S2 deeper so effectively it was capped. Just needs to be flush with the surrounding structure, upper and lower.

Cheers

Hi Danny.

Thanks for checking in. Good to know that S2 must be bigger.

On Covering, I`m thinking in various options. I have in stock Solartex, Oratex, 21st Century Fabric (Factory painted) and Coverlite. I`m thinking on using coverlite in the tail parts and the fuse. Pobably Solartex on the wings.

I ordered in november some Flitemetal, but my order get lost in their computer system. reordered on february, this time the partel get lost. New replacement has been sent end of april. Hope this time arrives.

I don't know Coverlite you will have to give it a good explanation when you use it

Solartex is a good choice for the wings, keeps it straightforward.

Great that you should get some Flite-Metal it is very good.

Cheers

Hi Jose. I used silver Oratex for the first time and found it very easy to apply. dsc_0538[261].jpg

Hi Danny.

Of course I´ll explain how to use the coverlite.

eric. That wing looks fantastic. Mine will be yellow (laugh)

This past days I`ll finished adding the missing capstrips in the wing tips. While I have the wing upside down I put two layer of 1/32 ply over the ribs, so I have the hatch for th aileron servo. THe ply is not glued to the wing. Have to develop the mounting of the servo,

hpim1680.jpg

Also added the leading edge strips.

hpim1681.jpg

Sanded the leading edge to the contour of the sheeting. Not yet finshed.

hpim1682.jpg

Next in the agenda hingibg the ailerons and mount the servos with the extension wires.

Cheers.

Excellent work, hopefully we are all inspiring each other to get these finished during this flaming lock-down.

Really rewarding to see these lovely Fury's coming together, and sorry I took my foot off the gas for so long.

Cheers

Hi Fury Fans.

No mutch progress, but good progress.

Made the holes in the ribs for the aileron servos. Used a sharpened brass tube and a piece of balsa for centering the position in each rib and a back plate for supporting the rib.

Today marked the position of the hinges and carefully slotted the fiberglass parts. Next will be fine tunning and add the leading edge.

Prior to the work on the hinges I had to add a strip ob balsa (1/16) in the leading edge for truing it, because when I glued the strips this curved in the center. Once dry this stip I put a long strip of sandpaper and trued the leading edge.

Cheers

José Luis.

Hi Fury followers.

Thanks Eric. Not so Tidy (blush)

The past week I`d been doing other things. Un fortunatelly I glued the fiberglass hings in the wing. But when I offered the ailerons these were about six mm out of the trailing edge. So with a X-Acto blade sliced over the side of each hinge to free them. It took a lot of patience. Now more or less resolved. I haven´t glued it yet. I have to figure a few things....

When assembling the three panels I broke a few things and had to reglue them.

hpim1684.jpg

But that wasn´t all the things that will appear. The trailing edge don`t align. I dont know what happened.

hpim1685.jpg

Need to recheck before solver the problemm.

I take a change of mind and looked to the servo installatios in the fuse and wing. I+m planning on using pull-pull for the rudder and elevator. The servos will be in the area of the detachable part of the fuse and the crossbar in the cockpit area.

For the ailerons I`d made a ply plate. The servo will be screwed to a pair of blocks and the plate screwed to the wing.

hpim1686.jpg

Well. I have a lot of things to solve for now on.

Cheers.

José Luis

Me too, Danny.

After the situation on the center panel I get distracted with other things. I finished the aileron area sheeting all over, much easy that put capstrips-

hpim1687.jpg

Also added some ply to support and screw the covers with the servos.

hpim1688.jpg

So after some mental relax I went for the infamous center panel. I checked the panel againts the plan and the structure to set the angle of the wing. As you can see the ploblem is in the tail of the ribs.

hpim1691.jpg

As the center ribs are full, not sections the problem is in the outboard ribs. So I cut the tails free of the second spar (The top capstrip remain uncut) and reglue them with plenty of weight. This solved the problem in a 99 percent. (wink)

hpim1692.jpg

A this moment I glued the rails for the elevator and rudder servos.

hpim1689.jpg

The servos are Futaba 3150 digis.

Cheers.

José Luis.

Hi Fellow Furymites..

A bit of progress. Not much really.

Glued the ply blocks to the aileron servo plates.....

hpim1693.jpg

hpim1695.jpg

Glued some 1/64 plywood to the front of F1, for having a hard point to sand to and fix the carbon cow.

hpim1697.jpg

Also glassed the center part of the fuse. Applied some peel-ply. Yesterday I Skinned this wiyh aluminium foil, removed it today because not satissfied as is was a bit shot of width.

hpim1694.jpg

Today replaced the shrod of the right panel as it was bad positioned.

hpim1698.jpg

Until next.

Thanks Danny.

A little more progress. I built the leading edge of the ailerons a bit diferent to Danny`s. I put a plastic tube for the wire, glued a 1/16" balsa supporting it and capped the leading-edge with balsa and sanded flush top and bottom. Later sanded the front end to fix in the wing recess.

hpim1699.jpg

hpim1700.jpg

When I began the biuld of the plane I began with the tail feathers ..... I decided to use "Robart" style hinges but didn`t manage to align the holes so I put apart and filled the holes with balsa stick. Now I dusted the parts and made new holes that linned this time. So once did I profiled the fin and rudder.

In the stab/elevator I redid the holes, put the hinges and made the elevator horn. Really a hard time (Due to my eysight problems...).

hpim1701.jpg

Made the channel for the wire and finish adjusting the wire. Onece satisfied I glued it with 30 minutes epoxy and microballons. Today fixed the front ply and drawed the profilling lines in the "ribs".

Prepared the cross bars for the rudder and elevator wires....

hpim1702.jpg

Until next.

José Luis

Here we go.

All the main parts are done. So I profiled the tail parts and glued some tubing for the bolts that will fix the bracing on the tail.

hpim1703.jpg

hpim1704.jpg

Also you can see in the above pics some balsa glued around the tubes for suporting the covering. Next dust-off the parts for covering with coverlite.

Today prepared the stab for the elevator wires. Made a jig from ply offcuts with the angle of the wires and used a drill bit and fine file for finishing it.

hpim1705.jpg

Next CA the teflon tubes for the wires.

Also made the exit holes in the fuse for the rudder and elevator wires.

hpim1706.jpg

Thats all for today.

Cheers.

José Luis
